Arts Subsidy

The current argument regarding ARTS Subsidy is that ONLY by SUBSIDISING  Theatre do theatres run as b usinesses NOT end up Catering to the Lowest Common Denominator.

This explains the huge risk and expense in staging musicals and the fact that the Audience LOVE WAGNER.

Of course - there ARE Popular plays, productions, writers and players - some of whom Pass The Test of Time.

So - the 1st Questions any budding stage artiste is required to enquire into

1. What is the SCOPE  of this Production?

2. Where are the Stage Hand Agreements?

3. What is the Risk of Theatre cancellation?

4. Can you AFFORD me not to have a Coughing Fit - mid-performance?

5. If not - then I will have to concentrate on my Own Development Programme, or - Come back to you later when you are not Running on Empty.. .. the terms of theatre for sustainability require Theatre Companies of full time Touring Players as was the case with Shakespeare and The Globe and is Now the Case with School of Writers - Czechia
